why has had no one responded? There were a few Dropbox responses at the beginning of the thread? This is a epic fail on your end. Why do I need to run a script that some one else has created when I'm paying you to use a service that is clearly not working.
please resolve this issue ASAP. I have asked for you to turn off automatic updates (which I don't know why the user themselves can not do on there own). This is very unacceptable on Dropbox's end with the lack of response/support.
please correct this issue.
Hi Bm, HT, Ciro, Ehren, and Thomas,
I've temporarily disabled updates for your accounts. Sorry for the delay.
Here is a pointer to the previous version:
Old version comes in handy.
In case I could help you guys with logs or stuff, just give me a shot.
For those, that don't want to wait for Dropbox to disable automaitc updates:
give chattr -i a try. Not shure it will work though...
Should be something like: chattr -Ri ~/.dropbox-dist
After you installed the old version. But dont forget to disable the readonly state after a while, as Dropbox will (fingers crossed) provide an update at some point.
[Edit Damn, thats the osX Version. Was looking for ubuntu though....
Updated: I have now downgraded to version 3.10.7 and that one seems to be working ok. I can access the icon in system tray, and the app seems to do both indexing and downloading/uploading. It's been a while since last time, so the remaining time is what it is, but I'm glad it seems to be running ok with an old version... Hope a stable 3.14.x with no bugs is just around the corner
For the Dropbox devs, I copy here something that can be useful to debug this:
[Bug 1546176] Re: Dropbox icon not working on Xubuntu 14.04

Same here using xubuntu 14.04.3
I found this entry in ~/.cache/xfce4-indicator-plugin.log repeated every
time I restarted Dropbox
DEBUG Indicator-Application Building new application entry:
org.kde.StatusNotifierItem-2553-1 with icon: at position 1
DEBUG libindicator-plugin Entry added for io=libapplication.so
WARNING LIBDBUSMENU-GLIB Getting layout failed:

The last line was repeated every time I clicked on the panel icon.
I only just now confirmed that my installation was updated on 2/16/16
without me knowing about it!
